Tenuta San Guido Red Bordeaux Blend Bolgheri Sassicaia Sassicaia 1985

Winemaker's Notes:

This maceration allowed a complete diffusion of the poliphenols contained in the skins of the must. Following a very precocious malolactic fermentation, the wine begun at the beginning of November its ageing period of 24 month in french oak barriques, one third new. Very complex and elegant on the nose, with scents of red fruits. Strong, concentrated, with sweet and balanced tannins on the palate. Very long finish with very important organoleptic and poliphenolic aspects, which will ensure to this wine an extraordinary longevity.
